Building Strategic Connections  - How-to’s for Agents, Face-to-Face or Screen-to-Screen

The COVID-19 pandemic is sending shock waves rippling through the economy, especially the real estate world.  The impact on your Agents and your Agency is bound to be significant as you adjust to widespread disruptions to your business and personal life. 



You depend on your Agents’ skill in building a wide and deep circle of contacts.  And yet, research by Contacts Count LLC reveals that among professionals:

  • 68% say, I don’t know exactly WHO I need to have in my network.”

  • 61% say, “I don’t know WHAT to do to make a relationship more useful.”

  • 61% say, “I don’t know WHEN to ask questions to move a relationship forward.”


These dilemmas only get worse when people work remotely. The solution? Train your Agents to connect, converse, and collaborate whether working face-to-face or screen-to-screen.
